i heart shopaholic-wishful wednesday

Wishful Wednesday! You know you want to....

This week's topic is ....
'I wish' .... I could play a character's role in a book and it would be Becky Bloomwood!

"Oh my God, I, Rebecca Bloomwood, have been the victim of a crime. Now it all makes sense. Some criminal's pinched my credit card and forged my signature. Who knows where else they've used it? No wonder my statement's so black with figures! Someone's gone on a spending spree round London with my card--and they thought they would just get away with it." -Confessions of a Shopaholic

Ahhhh..... a woman after my own heart. OBVIOUSLY she'd been wronged. OBVIOUSLY I have too....if only I could get more people to believe me.

These books are amazing. I'd love to be her. No, not because she's thrown herself into a LARGE amount of debt. But because she's kooky, hopeless, hillarious, and it's IMPOSSIBLE not to love her. Oh--and the closet would be fun too.

"FRUGALITY. SIMPLICITY. These are my new watchwords. A new, uncluttered, Zen-like life, in which I spend nothing. SPEND NOTHING. I mean, when you think about it, how much money do we all waste everyday? No wonder I'm in a little bit of debt. And really, it's not my fault. I've merely been succumbing to the Western drag of materialism."

Well said, Becky. Well said.


  1. Love Becky. She reminds me of myself and my bad shopping habits, but I have learned much from her!! Cheers!

  2. I would have a good time; ohhhh if only to be in her shoes for one day :)
